Salem Heights Hall, 3505 Liberty Rd. S, South Salem (D)

In the 1920s this building was part of a self-contained rural neighborhood centered by a school and grocery store. The Hall was used for community suppers, school assemblies and movies. Fires resulted in closure and repairs during the 1960s and it was moved slightly when Madrona Avenue was widened. A sign was placed on the building in 1963. This land, donated by Fred Thompson, must always be used as a community hall or the property will revert to his heirs.
